Hi All,

I've been buried in assembling a book wrapped around the stories of the some of the missions and patrols of the PT-157. This is centered around the the 157 while at the front lines in Rendova and Lever Harbor (in the summer of 1943) and the accounts from the two remaining crewman (Skipper Liebenow and torpedoman West) whom I first met while doing the model of the 157.

The principle work on the book is complete. There is one photo, however, I have and I believe I found it either posted in this forum or in Ted Walther's photo bucket.

I want to give credit in the book to whoever is the 'owner'...so does anyone know who that is?

P.S. Sam Koury was the R/M 1/C of the PT-157.

Thanks! - Bridge

Bridge-

That very photograph, complete with handwritten caption, resides in the archives of PT Boats, Inc. Hope this helps.

Yes I sent it to you and it is in my photobucket. Alex is correct, it is from PTHQ.
Take care,
TED

Thanks Ted. I'll credit you as the source and PTHQ as its current location.
